First day if being inside my EDD range (9/13 - 9/26)... really hoping to get a VIN this week.

But in the meantime, the electrician just finished installing this today. Now I just need something with four wheels to plug it into. 🤣

Just out of curiosity, since the Tesla has the power port on the driver's side, are you backing in and running the cable to the left (along the wall) or are you pulling in and reaching the cable around the back to the other side of the car? Did you get the 8-foot, 18-foot, or the new 24-foot cable? And is the gray box just a junction box or is it a service disconnect?

Looks like a clean installation. :cool:

I got the 18' cable which is plenty of length to run the cable behind the rear bumper of the MY to the charge port on the driver's-side rear (driving the car straight into the garage space where the charger will be next to the passenger rear).

The grey box is a service disconnect (Assuming it must be needed to comply to code)

That's you, me, and OCJeff... all 3 of us are in day 1 of our EDD range... hope the tail end of the date range doesn't move.... would really love to have a MYLR in my garage within next two weeks.
I enter my EDD range tomorrow pending nothing changes. This is the first time and the closest I’ve ever been! 😅🤞🏻🤞🏻

Thanks, nice layout.

Also, NEC doesn't require a service disconnect since it is less than 60 Amps, each leg is only 120Volts to ground, and it is corded. But some cities might require it just because... Note that other things such as an outside heat pump are hard wired so they do need a service disconnect.

For California, PG&E has excerpted the requisite sections in this PDF document:
https://www.pge.com/includes/docs/pdfs/about/environment/pge/electricvehicles/ev5pt3.pdf

You'll also notice the phrase "must not exceed 25 feet in length". That's why the Tesla wall charger now comes with a 24 foot cord.

Ordered 8/9 and had a few EDD around September. Now there is no longer any delivery information and they said they would get in contact with me. I'm currently in New York and have my delivery location as California. Anyone ever do a different state order before?

So if someone gets a VIN, but their car never shows up, this is why.

I saw this...and of course, it happens to be in Sacramento area. 😭 My pick up location is Rocklin and EDD is steady at 9/18 - 9/30 so we'll see if this has a huge impact on Rocklin / NorCal orders.

The carrier that crashed near Sacramento was carrying Tesla batteries. Not sure what this photo is from?
